The free games thread

Postby Kosh » Thu Jan 14, 2021 9:42 am

Hey all, I know some of you are PC gamers so thought I would give you all a heads up on how to get a free copy of Star Wars Battlefront 2.

Epic Games are currently running a 'free game a week' deal. The game is totally free, all you need to do is to sign up for an account (again free), download the launcher and for the next week you can at any point purchase for free Star Wars Battlefront 2. The game will tag to your account and will remain free after the deal passes.

https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/

That should take you to the correct sign up page, from there you just go to the Battlefront 2 page and buy it, for $0.

I just love the word 'free'.

Thanks for letting us know.

Epic runs free games every week. Some times, like last month, they do Free Games Every Day, just an FYI to people who don't know.

Wow. The graphics are very nice. Tried it out for 30 minutes or so today.

Thanks for the heads up about this one Kosh.

Most welcome bud. I was dipping my toe into it as well last night. Joined a Starfighter battle in the clone wars, got enough 'points' and got to fly Luke's X-Wing in the match.

A point of interest, the game has a coop mode allowing 4 players to take on the cpu. No idea how good it is but worth a look perhaps.

Did it have all four wings? In "The Last Jedi" the door to Luke's house was one of the wing's outer plates.

Oh, I have that. I beat it over the summer. It's a lot easier than GC2 was.

You can install a lot of pre-built ship frames (cosmetic-only that you can equip as you see fit). I used the SDF-01 as my capital ship with VF-9's as light beam units, Super VF-1's for missilers, VF-19's for kinetics, VF-29's for combo weapon types.

Ah the Last Jedi, the film with arcing laser blasts in deep space, history breaking battle tactics, the worst designed space bomber ever and the longest chase scene in cinematic history.

Thank you Ruin Johnson for that peak into madness.

Nice to know about the mods for GC3, thanks for the heads up.

That game is great for mods. It was pretty much built around the concept.

That was probably just Force Pull on an object with really high inertia.

That movie did ruin Luke, though. That was, like, the opposite of how he should gone. Although, the callback to the 90's novel when his Fallanassi friend told him that if he tried to use her Force Projection ability that it would probably kill him was nice.
